Easing entry into the labour market

Unemployment remains high, particularly among first-time labour market entrants (mainly the young) and re-entrants (mainly women), while the long-term unemployed account for a high share of the total. There is scope for policy to facilitate entry to the labour market particularly by reducing minimum labour costs and easing the relatively strict employment protection legislation. Neither is currently on the government’s policy agenda.
